After long being under the shadow of misconceptions, hypnosis emerged as an effective and safer therapy which can reliably used in medical field to treat several diseases, psychological and behavioral disorders, etc.
Thanks to the studies, hypnosis managed to gain its rightful position. Though the information on hypnosis is readily available everywhere, people still have some confusion and associate some myths with hypnosis. Different sources are responsible for hypnosis myths. Taking into account the great benefits of hypnosis, such hypnosis myths must be cleared.

Among other hypnosis myths, perhaps the widely spread hypnosis myth is that all the hypnosis tools are the same and bring the same results. It is not true since hypnosis can be good, bad or indifferent. Good hypnosis observes subtle psychological principles and highly developed communication patterns to satisfy different needs.
Another common hypnosis myth is that hypnosis will not work on some people and that some people can stop themselves from being hypnotized. On the contrary, it is said that the possibility of not getting hypnotized is restricted to the cases when the subject or patient is unable to pay attention due to very low IQ or some kind of brain damage, for example.

One of the most disturbing and defaming hypnosis myths is spread by the media which suggests that the subject, who is being hypnotized, goes under the full control of the hypnotist, and that he loses all the control.
On the contrary, when a subject agrees to be hypnotized and cooperates fully, only then the hypnotist could attain the desired results. During all the process, the conscious mind will be in a resting state while all the senses will remain active.
The subject will be able to hear, feel, talk and react to any unwanted happening at will. The subject just goes into deeply relaxed state. Many people avoid going to hypnotherapist for their problems fearing that the hypnotist or hypnotherapist would take full control of their mind and would make them do things that he wants.

Hypnosis offers great benefits. Due to the hypnosis myths, some people hesitate to approach a hypnotherapist for their problems. If you study hypnosis closely, you will admire how effectively and safely it helps us to treat several diseases, to correct psychological and behavioral disorders, to control weight, to get rid of unwanted habits, in sports, in improving self-confidence, to relive you from anxiety and depression, etc. To get the great advantages of hypnosis, hypnosis myths should not be taken seriously.
